Psalm 99

Praise to the Lord For His Holiness

1 The Lord reigns;

Let the peoples tremble!

aHe dwells between the cherubim;

Let the earth be 1moved!

2 The Lord is great in Zion,

And He is high above all the peoples.

3 Let them praise Your great and awesome name—

2He is holy.

4 The King’s strength also loves justice;

You have established equity;

You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.

5 Exalt the Lord our God,

And worship at His footstool—

He is holy.

6 Moses and Aaron were among His priests,

And Samuel was among those who bcalled upon His name;

They called upon the Lord, and He answered them.

7 He spoke to them in the cloudy pillar;

They kept His testimonies and the 3ordinance He gave them.

8 You answered them, O Lord our God;

You were to them God-Who-Forgives,

Though You took vengeance on their deeds.

9 Exalt the Lord our God,

And worship at His holy hill;

For the Lord our God is holy.


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
